She was unable to attend the event in person due to a split kneecap.

Let us remind ourselves that Millie is FOURTEEN years old and is being bullied on the internet which is a sad case in itself. She hasn’t directly addressed the memes but she did give a powerful anti bullying message in her acceptance speech at the MTV Movie and TV Awards last night.

A post shared by MBB (@milliebobbybrown) on

Millie was unable to attend the event as she split her kneecap which meant she couldn’t accept her award for ‘Best Performance In a Show’ for playing Eleven in the Netflix smash Stranger Things. She did however, send a video to make a speech in her absence which tackled the issue of bullying head on.

Since I know there are many young people watching this and adults too, they could probably use the reminder that I was taught. If you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say it. There should be no space in this world for bullying and I’m not going to tolerate it.

She’s been campaigning against bullying for a long time and has a separate Twitter devoted to that message which hasn’t been updated since the end of 2017. Nevertheless it’s still there and verified so we know it’s her.

It’s safe to say that people were pretty impressed with Millie and her message.

It’s not clear if the video was recorded before or after she became the subject of those memes but either way it’s a nice message to get out there. Hopefully she’ll be back to tweeting soon.
